And now to turn our attention to logic.
"Logic!" said the Professor half to himself. "Why don't they teach logic at these schools?"
~The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
One of the many things that attracted me to the classical education model was the idea of teaching my children logic. I never studied logic in school, and I figured I could learn right along with my kids. Had I realized how much of logic involved puzzles, I might have taught myself sooner. Because of my own experience with school, I figured logic was one of those dull subjects taught out of a dusty old textbook. And face it, Mr. Spock never seemed very exciting either.
